Drive into Edinburgh city centre or take the train from nearby Dalmeny Station. Our stylish hotel is just a 30 minute drive from the city’s shopping, entertainment and cultural centre, ideally located for the world famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival and is just over the Queensferry Crossing from the Fife region.
